Aubrey Plaza marries longtime boyfriend, director Jeff Baena: ‘So proud of my darling husband’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Aubrey Plaza has married her longtime boyfriend, director and screenwriter Jeff Baena. 

The “Parks and Recreation” actor called Baena “my husband” for the first time publicly Friday in an Instagram post. Her publicist confirmed the two had married but gave no details. 

Plaza, 36, and Baena, 43, have been a couple for about a decade. She has appeared in two of his films, 2014’s “Life After Beth” and 2017’s “The Little Hours,” and is slated to appear in his forthcoming “Spin Me Round,” which was the subject of her Instagram post. 

“So proud of my darling husband @jeffbaena for dreaming up another film that takes us to italia to cause some more trouble,” Plaza wrote alongside a photo of the couple.

She also appears in the new Showtime anthology series “Cinema Toast,” which he created. 

Plaza is best known for playing April Ludgate from 2009 to 2015 on the NBC comedy series “Parks and Recreation.” In 2020, she starred as a filmmaker in “Black Bear” and as an ex-girlfriend who comes between couple Harper (Mackenzie Davis) and Abby (Kristen Stewart) in Hulu holiday movie “Happiest Season,” the first same-sex Christmas rom-com produced by a major studio.

Earlier this year it was announced Plaza would be releasing her first children’s book, “The Legend of the Christmas Witch,” about the forgotten twin sister of Santa Claus. The Viking Children’s Books release hits shelves Oct. 12.

In addition to his films with Plaza, Baena directed the 2020 Netflix drama “Horse Girl” with Alison Brie, who also co-wrote “Spin Me Round” with Baena and will co-star with Plaza.
